So In Denial

It can't be easy for Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Arizona) to have a son like Tanner. The 15-year-old's Facebook game name is "[n-word]killer," he uses the f-word when referring to gays and pretty much every other offensive term imaginable. Flake says his son has "a language problem" and uses words that are "unacceptable." That's probably what a lot of people think about the father's explanation.
